Villa Savoye, Poissy

4.3
Designed by famed Swiss architects Le Corbusier and his cousin, Pierre Jeanneret, Villa Savoye represents a modern architectural masterpiece open to the public. The Savoye family commissioned the house as a country retreat in 1928, and it was finished in the early 1930s. The home became Corbusier's best-known building from the era, as it exerted an enormous influence on the international modernism architectural movement through its design. During World War II, Nazis sent the family to a concentration camp and used the house for storage. After the war, the French government took ownership; it was designated a historical monument in 1965. Plan a Poissy trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • Was, so I went in uber. Young visitors are coming, and why not cool is there were a lot of nice people. The building is seen in the magazine! See raw, I was impressed. Don't see it building in 1931. Return from walking a little bit on the bus back to the San German unlay, and from there went to the heart of Paris with PER. You could only 17 minutes bus bus watching says the iPad is citymap San = German unlay previously displayed and 40 minutes, but hidden in the app is coming back. I think if there something Poissy other major access from Poissy and I think that's in only one way via Saint-German unlay, tourism and tetside.

  • When we like Le Corbusier and architecture in general, we focused on ideas of genius and forget the poor maintenance of the place. There is rarely a guide for guided tours (!) either in french or English! On the dozen times where I went, I had to guide her to my friends a dozen times... Too bad because it gives a very bad image of the France!

  • Very nice villa I admired the architecture, however I regret 8euros admission because I find the poorly maintained building, lack cruel chairs (especially in front of the videos), as well as the lack of signs indicating the villa, or staff Nice and sweet.

  • You must visit this modern architecture icon if your an architect or designer. It's an amazing adventure arriving Poissy and walk up through the suburb that lead to Villa Savoye, Getting immerse in this manifest of Modernism is priceless. You can easily get in by train from Paris.
  • An amazing place even for people who are far from architecture. I strictly recommend you to take a guided tour: all the functionality of the house gets much more clear. The tiny regrets for me are (1) almost no furniture & (2) urban landscape, that's why you are supposed to have a very good imagination to see how the place looked back in 1931...
  • A bit outside of Paris city, but easy to reach from RER. Around 20 minutes walking (a bit inclining) to the villa from the train station, or you could wait for the bus to the place. It is mostly famous for the architectural history of modern buildings at the time
  • What an incredible structure. We went because my boyfriend is an architect and I bought him this Lego set for chtistmas. We were blown away!
  • Excellent piece of modern architecture. Fantastic work by Le Corbusier.
